Cerebral palsy refers to a group of neurological disorders that present in early childhood as delay in acquisition of milestones (predominantly motor problems). These disorders do not worsen over time. Early treatment prevents emergence of complications and facilitates integration of the child into mainstream schooling.
Often there are associated symptoms, such as seizures, feeding difficulties, hearing and visual problems, attention deficit, learning disorders, behavioural problems, etc., which need to be addressed as vigorously.
We, at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, have a devoted team that offers multidisciplinary care to the patients with Cerebral Palsy. We shall guide and support the child and the family to cope with this chronic condition at every step—from diagnosis to comprehensive treatment.
The goal of treatment in Cerebral Palsy is functional independence for the child. Treatment is multimodal.
Our rehabilitation team consists of Clinical Psychologist, Paediatric Occupational Therapists and Paediatric Speech and Language Therapists. We have an advanced Gait Analysis Laboratory. At Kokilaben Hospital we are committed to offering all services listed above under one roof. We also offer home based programs to help patients who reside out of Mumbai.
